I have 209 total cholesterol: 134 LDL, 56 HDL, 90 Trig. Will intro. of daily fish oil supplement help lower my total cholesterol levels? Thank you!

High quality marine fish oil is good for lots of things and will lower your trig. which are already fine. If cholesterol goes too low there can be problems. Just enjoy what you have.

Eat better: Ldl, your bad cholesterol is affected by genetics and diet. You can improve your diet by becoming more plant based since animal fat can increase LDL as well as sugar!. So try to get 5-7 veggies/fruits per day, eat lean protein only with no skin (grilled, baked or broiled), decrease dairy since that is also animal fat, and stop all processed and refined sugar.
